I have a FreeBSD machine running on a virtual machine. I am using SUN Virtual Box. I need to set static IP address to this machine. So that I can access this machine. Is there anyway to do this ?
ifconfig_em0="inet 192.168.0.254 netmask 255.255.255.0"
192.168.0.254 -- the machine IP,
192.168.0.1 -- gateway
These settings in rc.conf are looked up in the boot process.
If you'd like to set ip manually, run:
ifconfig em0 inet 192.168.0.254 netmask 255.255.255.0 route delete default; route add default 192.168.0.1
